's here to dish on the debt and deal in taxes. and big money, big problems? mitt romney's campaign is debt free, but where is all that money coming from? we'll tell you why it could add up to a little bit of trouble for the republican front-runner. good morning, it's monday, july 18th, 2011. i'm chuck todd. just 15 days until default day. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. it's a week of public spectacle and private wrangling. efforts to get a big debt deal done has failed. >> when you look in the past at agreements between divided government, it's taken leadership on both sides. it took reagan and o'neil. it took clinton and gingrich. the president is out there. he's willing to do it. he said it in the state of the union, he said it in the budget. the question is, do we have a partner to work with? and i hope the answer to that is yes. >> this week we'll see a two-track process. publicly, leaders will get a few votes out of the way to allow conservatives to get on the record on a balanced budget amendment and set the table that nothing besides the final deal can pass. meanw

says she manages the migraine with medication and is otherwise healthy. with all of that said, big news out of texas today, the gor rick perry who said he recently feels a calling to national politics has now gotten green light from key constituent, his wife. >> as my wife was talking to me and says get out of your comfort zone. yeah, being governor of texas is a great job. but sometimes you are called to step in to the fray. >> reporter: no word on a timetable yet. unclear whether perry will participate in the straw poll. his aides here tried to respect event facilities and were told they missed the deadline now they're pulling back resources. perhaps he won't participate the straw poll but there is a chance he could be on the debate stage a few days beforehand. >> bret: a lot of flirting here going on. thank you. we'll talk about it in the panel. the man charged with the 2009 fort hood shooting rampage major nidal hasan was arraigned today and faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. the prosecution is seeking the death penalty. we'll show

about today. the jury in the casey anthony murder trial got a big job to do this holiday. deliberations are expected to begin in a few more hours. first, the prosecution has some rebutting to do. the defense claims the state did not prove that case say anthony killed her daughter caylee but they played with the jury's emotions. >> you see the strategy behind that is, is if you hate her, if you think she's a lying, no good slut, then you will start to look at this evidence in a different light. you will start to, oh, wait a minute, maybe i'm seeing something that's not there and start to actually discriminate against her rather than give her the standard that is afforded to each and every citizen in our country. >> the trial in orlando gets under way at 8:30 eastern. the judge warned the jury today will be a long way for them. >>> fox news politics on twitter, someone has clearly hacked the twitter handle. the site is putting up all kinds of insane, inappropriate and untrue tweets about president obama. basically april fool's type stuff that isn't funny. we reached out to fox and twitter
matthews down in washington. leading off tonight, too big to fail? here are the two things to take away from mitch mcconnell's offer. one we are no longer looking at democrats versus republicans or liberals versus conservatives. this is a fight between the leaders and protesters, people who are responsible for america's financial health and those who never have to worry about an election. second, money talks, b.s. walks. when major financial groups told the gop that default was not an option, they suddenly saw the light. as phil graham once said -- -- we learned that many on the right only pretend to care about the debt. what they care about is shrinking government and lowering taxes. tonight we're going to put a spot light on the unsupported republican claim that somewhat higher taxes for the better off means fewer jobs for everyone. also, the rupert murdoch scandal has claimed another victim. murdoch has dropped his bid to buy british sky broadcasting tonight. will it threaten his holdings here in the states? >>> the latest poll on republicans may show that mitt romney is in more trou
't get licensing for all sorts of things like fishing and what not be, and it's a big recreational state. it cost the state millions in be lost revenue from lottery sales, tax audits, park fees and licensing fees, so on and so forth, but now they can go ahead. some state officials now saying, though, it may take some time to get programs back up and running so they can be moneymakers again for the state. and those 22,000 state employees can go back to work, but it's kind of a phase-in situation. so the big headline in all of this is the longest-running state shutdown in a decade in this country now has come to a close with the governor making an agreement with leading republicans in the state of minnesota. now back to you guys. jenna: hi, everybody, so glad you're joining us today, i'm jenna lee. jon: and i'm jon scott. we are here in the fox newsroom and "happening now," brand new numbers in the race for the white house. "the wall street journal" poll shows tea party favorite michele bachmann is surging. jenna: she's not the national leader, though, that title goes to mitt romney. jon:
, this backup plan could be left as the last option standing. but the big question is always, wolf, will it pass the house? can it pass the house? and this seems to be another example of just how divided the republican party is on this issue. >> yeah, it's a huge, huge division right now. going forward, this debate, we'll see what happens. kate, thanks very much. let's check in with jack right now. he's got the "cafferty file." >> despite that nasty game of chicken going on in washington over raising the debt ceiling. congressional leaders in both parties pretty much agree that doing it is going to be necessary. the argument is over what else goes into the bill that's tying them up and bringing the country dangerously close to defaulting on some of our loans. according to a new poll, 40% do not want the debt ceiling raised and they want their members of congress to vote against any measures that raise it. only 22% want their lawmakers to vote for raising the debt ceiling. and more than 1/3 of americans say they're just not sure. when asked which is a greater concern, 51% say raising the debt cei
is your chance to talk back on one of the big stories of the day. today's question is what would you tell congress to do about the debt limit? carol costello is joining us from washington. carol, i bet you're going to get a lot of folks weighing in on this one. >> i urge all of our facebook friends to keep it clean. that's my only request today. what is happening in washington is political gamesmanship at its worse. it's ugly and more than a little scary. the united states has never gone into default because past administrations and lawmakers have compromised. cnn contributor john avalon says lawmakers have raised the debt ceiling 77 times including 8 tooils times under ronald reagan and back in the day politicians weren't quite so macho. many insist on standing on principal even though most americans stand on the side of good old fashioned compromise. two-thirds of americans want the president and republicans to compromise, rather than stand up for their beliefs to get things done. wow. a break from part is anship. perhaps the happiest outcome of the president's speech last night was whe
was a big month for american auto makers. cite her says -- chrysler says sales was up 30%. general motors and ford report 10% increases. toyota and honda were off more than 21%. home construction fell 2.1% in may. overall, construction spending was down .6 of a percentage point. it could be four years before the construction returns to healthier levels. manufacturerring activity was up a bit in june after the worth month in two years in may. stocks ended the week on a high note. dow gained 168.5. s&p 500 up 19. nasdaq finished up 2.5. >>> governors in two midwestern states find themselves under fire tonight. one for not getting a budget deal done and another for the budget dealhe did get done. correspondent mike tobin has that story from chicago. >> with protesters already outside his door, ohio republican governor john kasich dove deeper in controversy signing a budget that closes a $6- to $8 billion budget gap with deep and painful cuts. hardest hit are private nursing homes with a #% reduction in medicaid funding. the powerful ohio healthcare lobby responded with a dramatic add campaig
the possibility of doing something bigger. >> look, here's where things stand. there are three different big deals out there. number one is what the president and speaker boehner and eric cantor are negotiating, which is, yes, a big deal that is separate from anything the gang of six in the senate is working on. and then of course there's mcconnell-reid. one thing that's going on in the last 24 to 48 hours, is any deal that's mcconnell-reid that includes this idea of sort of the disapproval vote, giving the president more power to raise the debt ceiling, that thing has grown to the point of almost being toxic with some house republicans. in fact, they hate it so much, they may prefer to negotiate with the president directly. but for the white house, getting the 217 means making a deal acceptable to at least some of those houses with 87 new members. the man who's made himself their standard bearer, majority leader eric cantor put it this way. >> one-third of the republican conference and one-quarter of the entire house of representatives are freshmen, they're new. many of them have never served in
are too big to fail, and that policy has failed. but the one thing that will not fail, for it is to majestic to ever letdown lady liberty, is you, the sovereign american people. [cheers and applause] through your hard work in your principal devotion to bequeathing to your children a better america, have no doubt that we will restructure the government for the future so that it is citizen-driven. we will restructure the wall street banks so we can grow our economy and shape the next american economic century.

. if you are going to rule out medicare now and say yeah, we are going to make big cuts but rule out medicare. that means democrats are focusing on 10%, discretionary spending that is our investments, r & d, education, infrastructure. the things we need to double and triple down on. the things we can afford to do in trying to catch up with china if we take care of the long-term structural debt on taxes, on health care and these other issues. >> yeah, we talked about the fact our health care system is at least 50% more expensive procedure by procedure than any other place in the world. we have this grip on a lot of the health care sector. we need health care reform. this is obvious. but it's been obvious for years. they don't do it on either side. >> coming up, connecticut governor dannel mall low. >> he's going to yell at you. >> i think he's in for a fight, yeah. yeah. >> mika is mad. she's not putting up with it anymore. >> this is incredible. sexual assault allegations against strauss-kahn. why it's on the verge of collapse. >> he was in yonkers at the time. come on. >>> first, he

(announcer) 28 delicious flavors at around 100 calories each. york. >> seems like an appropriate time to talk about your tuesday forecast as we sweat it out here. another scorcher from texas to connecticut. several storms from montana to northern new england. rainy in albuquerque and salt lake city. cooler and damp in the pacific northwest, which sounds heavenly. scattered thunderstorms across the gulf coast. >> it really is the humidity, isn't it. 90s from new orleans to boston. 85 in chicago. 79 in the twin cities. and 93 in kansas city. upper 70s in sacramento. 71 in portland. and 87 degrees in billings. >> of course it is the summer. all right. >>> the forecast for phoenix called for baseball-sized baseballs. major le
be drawn there from. now, the big question is will the defense bring up again those claims that casey anthony was molested by her father and brother to explain her behavior and her lying regardless of the fact we've heard little evidence to support these claims. this, we will hear tomorrow. >> and with the rebuttle case, who did they call to the stand? >> we know that one of the most important pieces for the state's case is to prove that this was a premeditated murder. the premeditation charge was challenged when we heard cindy anthony on the stand last week saying that she was reasonable for searching chloroform, neck breaking and a series of other rather incriminating items on the household computer and so, the prosecution brought in yesterday a series of witnesses, one of which was an officer at her company who could prove according to her time sheets, that she was at work and not at home when those suspicious searches for being made. there was also a challenge to dr. spitz' opinion. he was brought in by the defense, that the autopsy made on caylee's body was shoddy. so that's what
" article and tweeted this morning that bachmann won't be able to raise money from big donors because they don't really like her. i think a few things are going on. that could be true. perry sitting on sidelines could be true. i think if the corporations or big donors, big bundlers have money to give, they are giving it to the senate g.o.p. races. >> bob: they are. the other reason they are not giving it to her is they are scared to death that she will become president. that's my new zealand point. give her credit for raising money. she did it last year, and state-of-the-arted in the healthcare debate. she was smart getting out there -- and smart in the healthcare debate. this is not as formidable -- >> eric: this is only june 27. >> bob: but the real key is in the presidential politics, how many times do you go to the donor list to give money? if you have those small con industrybutions you can go back four or five times. if you can't go back ten times you are probably not going to hold up a big number. >> eric: there is also news she may have quit her church. what do you know? >> gr
, some real big news, actually, because speaker boehner, it seems, may have a plan that will come to fruition, before 4 p.m. this afternoon so that the asian markets aren't rattled and it will involve sort of a two pronged approach. >> yeah, but the most important part of the two step process clayton mentioned there's going to be a short-term extension involved and the democrats have objected to that, as you know, from the very beginning, the president, nancy pelosi, harry reid all three last night reiterating they will not support a short-term extension. so it appears we are playing with some serious fire on this sunday. >> what does john boehner do, comes up and hands over the paper work, they immediately say no. listen to this, thises what mitch mcconnell has to say about this. there is bipartisan agreement on the need to prevent fault and given the unprecedented size of the debt ceiling increase, the president is requesting, this is not an easy process. and the effort to prevent default while substantially reducing washington spending will continue. >> of course, all of the co
-term deal. let's look for the big fix. the president says, luke, let's go for the big fix and now the republicans are going, wait a minute. what gives? luke. >> politics is the art of the possible. a lot of folks on capitol hill feel right now that a short-term solution is the only thing possible because of the eight-day time window that you mentioned. that being said, there are two very different plans which you talked about in the introduction which are going through capitol hill right now. speaker boehner plan is going to have an extension, which gets us through the wipter. i'm told that speaker boehner's going to brief his house republican conference at 2:00 p.m. about the details of that plan. won't get extremely specific. then for all intensive purposes it looks from discussions i've had with certain aides that you can see as early as wednesday a house of representatives votes on speaker boehner's plan. harry reid is going to go his own way with a $2.7 trillion reduction plan across the board. both of these contessa are different than any of the grand bargains. reid's extend
. and they feel that the democrats have an ideological commitment to big government. what they would like to see is the government sweated down. that's the point they've been trying to make. there are honest differences and people have a very different view of what kind of society we ought to live in. >> but at a certain point, david, when there was a big deal on the table and if as you say the president could have brought nancy pelosi along -- i agree with you i think he could have -- the republicans would have gotten a great deficit reduction deal if they hadn't committed to the no tax pledge, right? >> but gloria, asking any party to commit to $1 trillion of tax increases is an awful big deal for a party that all along stood for lower taxes. and when they also feel a lot of these cuts are going to turn out to be illusory. their experience in the past they sign onto the bargains and they feel the democrats eventually end up getting what they wanted and what they wanted never materializes. >> there's a big difference between that and nothing. >> i agree. [ overlapping speakers ] >> so david, wh
doing some of the things you have seen in washington in a long time which is a big deal. >> i have to leave it there, luke. >> okay. sounds good. >> thank you so much. and check out that pizza for me. maybe he is sticking his neck out for the pizza. >> all right wp take care. >> joining me now former pennsylvania governor ed rendell now nbc news political analyst and bob shrum at new york university, thank both of you for being with us tonight. i mean, it seems to me, aside from the fact that this is dead on arrival at the u.s. senate according to senator reid and dead on arrival in fact, the move this all the way now to where we are talking about, the balance budget amendment has to be passed through both houses and states have to ratify it. i mean, this governor ren dell is gone from bad to worse. >> it is an embarrassment. i mean, this bill is an embarrassme embarrassment. they couldn't have the second debt limit raised even if they wanted to. it is an absolute embarrassment. i think speaker boehner might have been better biting the bullet and losing on a semi reasonable plan. b
a deal, it starts to weaken the white house i guess. >> reporter: a big deal of deficit reduction obviously is feeling very elusive and chances of doing something like that seem to be very slim at this point. in terms of the debt ceiling, they are very much relying on a plan being worked out by senators reed and mcconnell, top democrat and republican in the senate, to move something forward so the senate can take a lead and the house can then follow suit maybe making some changes. i think right now that's the best hope. i do want to tell you looking at the president's schedule today, it's mighty bare. his normal presidential briefing and meetings with senior advisers but certainly there's a lot of room built in there for any sort of communication he needs to do with congress. >> right. there was talk they are working through the weekend so they are doing everything possible to come to an agreement. >> over night too. >> u.s. and libya hosting secret face to face talks since the libyan conflict began four months ago. the point of the weekend meeting was to send a clear message to m
